UFC 191 'Embedded' video blog (Ep. 2): Secret ninja sh*t (and shopping) with Paige VanZant, John Dodson rushes to deliver a baby

The clock is ticking down to UFC 191, which takes place this Saturday night (Sept. 5, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

And there could not be a more worse time for the significant other of John Dodson -- who will rematch Flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson in the pay-per-view (PPV) main event -- to have a baby.

But, that's exactly what happened in the latest episode of "Embedded," forcing "The Magician" to go from clowning the Detroit Pistons at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) gym in "Sin City" to alarmingly jetting back to New Mexico to welcome his second child into this world.

Talk about a stressful week.

No UFC 191 preview would be complete with Strawweight standout Paige VanZant, who went on a little shopping spree to decompress ahead of her showdown opposite the unheralded Alex Chambers.

It's so cute!

Check out the description of the episode above:

"... the stars of the card put the finishing touches on their fight camps before heading to Las Vegas: Strawweight Paige VanZant shops for fun, heavyweight Andrei Arlovski visits the chiropractor, flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson invests in a professional beard trim and his opponent John Dodson takes family photos with his pregnant girlfriend. Strawweight Alex Chambers and local heavyweight Frank Mir continue their physical preparation in Sin City. Dodson arrives and takes part in a training session with the Detroit Pistons before receiving a life-changing phone call."

T-minus four days!
